I wonder where XGal and company live these days. Maybe we should go flip their system. Something tells me the help they would get from the minnies would be half hearted at best.

Goodbye to you, my hated friend
We've known each other since 2010
Together we've fought for bleak lands
Waged war without wearing pants
It's been a borderline romance

Goodbye my friend, it's hard to die
When all the systems seem to fall your side
If all is said and all is done
I will remember all the fun
You were the heroes, you were the scum

We had joy, we had fun
We sometimes bailed to sun
But the fights, let's all agree
Were the best of you and me

Still bitter we had our Gallente overlords come bail us out?

Once again, i can only apologize for having friends.

So, it appears everything is out in the open. Yes, we just lost some of our key people. That said, the rest of the A-VNG crew will still be out “fighting the good fight”.

I am both surprised and gladdened at the number of respectful comments that followed Rahelis’s post. It is good to see some people still get that this is all a game that we as a whole are playing to have fun. I am sure some of you get how your own enjoyment of FW, and to a degree EVE as a whole, will be hurt by having fewer dedicated opponents. It is hard to measure your mettle when there is less to stand up against.

Gf to all!

Whether it was involved in the war in local, this forum, KBs, or in system...it was a hell of a time...oh well! There's still a war going on, plenty of systems to fight for! See you guys soon....I think we can all be proud of being the center of EVE's attention for a couple weeks.

Besides, I'm sure we're going to be trying to defend Roushzar soon and I have a Jump Clone set up now in Cal/Gall, looking forward to seeing fights there too lol.

Well fought Amarrians. Given the amount of ships destroyed over the campaign amalgamated with the fact that both sides combined totaled less than a few hundred people, the Burn Huola campaign was perhaps one of the fiercest battles in the history of EVE. It certainly deserves a place in EVE's lore.

CTRL-Q now has hangers upon hangers of combat ships ready to deploy. We will not let them collect dust. Stay vigilant, Amarrians.

One idea connected to the thread.

This is the first major FW system seige since the patches that have hurt farmers. It would be very interesting if some clever people did the statistics on the conflict, if this campaign has been as epic as we suspect we could petition CCP to put a monument in Huola. All FW militias were represented, all militias had achievements to be proud of (inclufing pirate low sec forces, militia allied or third party) Faction Warfare would not hurt to have a publicity boost, if the numbers are impressive this could be FW's version of BR..

Any thoughts? The Huola campaign would serve as a nice contrast to stalemated coalition Null Sec...

There have been many huge and lengthy battles in eve history. While I'm sure many boats were violenced, I'm not so sure it was really so many as to stand out. Anyway, the monument thing is possibly being overdone.

As for stalemated, the current FW system occupancies have been rather so. Definitely better than the regular, rapid, and wide swings of the former pendulum, but a little more swing back in the direction of a little more swing would be better for game play. This may come about since the dps (but not the tanks) of the rats was just toned down with Crius. We shall see (saw?).Smile

CCP, there are off buttons for ship explosions, missile effects, turret effects, etc. "Immersion" does not seem to be harmed by those. So, [u]please[/u] give us a persisting off button for the jump gate and autoscan visuals.

If CCP will erect a monument in Huola; I already have a design for it.

All smack aside.

Iron Oxide was always the Yin to our Yang. No other minmatar corporation could go tow to toe with Amarrian Vengeance aside from Iron Oxide.

So for what it's worth; GF IO.

While the feeling of distaste for some of it's members splurge in local is mutual, FW wouldn't be FW without a healthy dose of smack.

They have most of the veterans and both doctrines are similar.

EVE would never have been a challenge for AVNG without you.

P.S. Sorry about Arzad
P.S.S. I guess we are even now?
P.S.S.S. Are you recruiting? P

Well that was one of the best weekends I have had in FW. Nonstop fleets and fighting. Thanks to all the FC's and logistic dudes that made it possible.

i'll never understand why people dislike local smack so much. it raises the stakes of losing and makes the other guy seem like more than a random dude 1000 miles away. what else are two "enemies" going to talk about in local? puppy dogs and rainbows?

thanks for the content amarr, i had a lot of fun. im just sorry i didnt get a chance to JF down our counter to your rail harpy fleet.

now who wants to buy this freaking scimi i only flew once? Ugh
